    Responding to incredible demand, iconic Aussie rockers Spiderbait have announced they will play a second Perth show on their Black Betty 20th Anniversary Tour, after the first show completely sold out.

    Spiderbait will land at Perth’s The Astor Theatre for back-to-back performances on Saturday 14 September (sold out) and Sunday 15 September (just announced) for an early show, starting 6pm. The three-piece now tallies eleven dates on their epic national tour this August, September and October to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of their seminal 2004 album, Tonight Alright and standout track, ‘Black Betty’ – including all ages shows in Brisbane, Hobart, Newcastle, Perth, Sydney, Gold Coast, Canberra and now in Adelaide too!

    Recorded in California, Tonight Alright (2004) leant into the hard rock sound of the early-2000’s. The album debuted at No.14 on the ARIA Album Chart that year and featured the band’s most popular song to date, ‘Black Betty’. Defying age and genre, ‘Black Betty’ arrived fifteen years into Spiderbait’s storied career. The song continued to climb the charts after release, reaching the top of the ARIA Singles Chart two months after its debut and hitting the US Top 40 Rock Chart.

    To celebrate Tonight Alright, Spiderbait will issue the album on vinyl for the first time. The 20th Anniversary edition – released on 26 July– arrives on limited edition red vinyl, with alternative artwork, imagery and an alternate version of the single, ‘Tonite’. Pre-order the vinyl HERE.

    Renowned for their dynamic on-stage energy, Spiderbait are without doubt one of the country’s most beloved live acts. Most recently touring Australia in 2022, the trio shows no sign of slowing down, their intensity and camaraderie endearing them to fans right across the globe.
